Blue and Green

This week Tina gives us the prompt Blue and Green for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

Having been down to the local bay at dawn a few hours before Tina posted the prompt I decided to see what else I could come up with over the Victoria Day long weekend in Canada.

Spots of Colour

This week Ann-Christine gave us the prompt Spots and Dots for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

I had a couple of ideas for the prompt before going for a walk on Sunday afternoon. The actual purpose of the walk was to continue my testing of the TTArtisan 35mm lens. But lens testing was quickly forgotten when I started looking for spots of colour.

Lens-Artists: Spots of Colour

Spots of Yellow. Having finally had a couple of days of spring like weather the Dandelions have emerged in force. It was the yellow flowers in the grass that gave me the idea for this post.

Spots of Green. Next I found these green leaves growing through the soil. I think they’re the leaves of Lily-of-the-valley.

Lens-Artists: Spots of Colour

Spots of Blue. Technically Periwinkle blue is a pastel purple. These Periwinkle flowers were the next spots of colour I spotted.

Lens-Artists: Spots of Colour

Spots of White. The final spots of colour I spotted were these White Trilliums. The provincial flower of Ontario and regarded as a sign of spring.

Getting to Know ICM

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Getting to Know You prompt.

Having initially considered various locations and nature subjects I thought about some of the ICM shots I had taken over the weekend.

I spent part of last weekend experimenting with various types of intentional camera movement using various lenses from an ultra wide angle lens to a macro lens.

The post is also a continuation of a the Lens-Artists prompt You Pick It earlier in the month.
